PM Modi at the 400th Parkash Purab celebrations of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur at Red Fort, Delhi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation at an event in the Red Fort on Thursday, to celebrate the 400th birth anniversary of Sikh guru Tegh Bahadur and also release a commemorative coin and postage stamp to mark the occasion. Addressing on the occasion, PM Modi said, "During that time, there was a storm of religious fanaticism. There were such people in front of India who had touched the zenith of violence and atrocities in the name of religion. India had found its hope in Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji to save its identity. In front of Aurangzeb's tyrannical thinking, Guru Tegh Bahadur became 'Hind di Chadar' and stood like a rock. History and this Red Fort is proof that Aurangzeb and other tyrants like him might have slit the head, but they could not shake our faith." The Prime Minister further said that Guru Tegh Bahadur has inspired the generations of this country to "live and die" for the protection of culture.
